"I'm new to pen collecting and this book tells me everything I need to know. I particularly like the chapter about buying pens on eBay, which is where I buy most of my pens. Very useful."

I was put off buying this book for it's alleged superficiality , I shouldn't have been , its not superficial to me. Tells me all I really want to know in collecting and keeping vintage pens. I particularly like the quality of the paper and print , and the many reproduced coloured adverts.Great value.

I bought this book as I'd just started buying and using vintage fountain pens. My favored period is 1920s and 30's. Unfortunately this book has limited information on pens from that period and most of the book concentrates on later pens. Not perfect for my purposes, but interesting all the same.

This is a beautifully illustrated book full of colour pictures of all brands and vintages of fountain pen. A large section of the book covers the various manufacturers, but there are also sections about the history of the fountain pen, how it works, building a collection etc.

A gorgeous, informative book which I've spent too much time poring over.
